Sunday Update #1: Vajir Singh, editor of Box Office India, confirms that The Amazing Spider-Man is outpacing Marvel's The Avengers in India. No official numbers are available yet, but Deadline.com is reporting that Spider-Man took in more than $5 million, which could be the biggest debut for an American film in India.
"It wouldn't surprise me if The Amazing Spider-Man beats Avengers here given that it is a much more established and universal brand in India," says Nitin Tej Ahuja, publisher of Box Office India. "It's a huge release—over 1,000 prints across formats—and relatively smaller domestic releases on the same weekend will contribute greatly to a big weekend."
